So what you're actually looking for is artists with a unique name?

Something like Elton? Cat? Lenny? Britney? Ozzy?

Like tero! pointed out, this is more to do with the rarity of a name than with celebrity. There is one name that comes to mind, though: Miles.

Madonna, GaGa and Pink are definitely not first names.

*Again*, this topic is speaking exclusively of FIRST NAMES. Names like "Madonna" or "Prince" or "Pink" are *designed* to be unique, we are talking about FIRST NAMES that have become bywords because of the awesomeness of the people who bear them.

Madonna and Prince are their real "undesigned" given names. Get your facts right before you start with the MAJUSCULE.
